Kizer Cutlery Ki5466A2 Matt Cucchiara Dukes Flipper 3.58" S35VN Stonewashed Blade, Dark Milled Titanium Handles
KUKI5466A2: Ki5466A2 Matt Cucchiara Dukes Folding Knife, Dark Stonewashed
The Ki5466A2 Dukes flipper by Kizer Cutlery is a collaborative project between Kizer and custom knifemaker Matt Cucchiara of Cucchiara Custom Knives and it might just be our favorite yet. With the "chipped flint" Anso-style milled titanium handle, the Dukes will stand out from the crowd. Its true EDC size and stellar design style make this knife a treasure to hold. Smooth action with ceramic bearings and steel lock bar insert further add to the premium folder that will be the ace up your sleeve. It features a 3.58" stonewashed CPM-S35VN blade with a drop point shape and finger choil. The bearing pivot system allows for unbelievably smooth blade opening, as with all Kizer knives. But somehow this one seems to flip better and smoother than any other. Even the least accomplished "flippers" in our building can fire this blade out like a rocket. The dark stonewashed titanium handles are intricately milled for grip and are some of the most comfortable we've ever held. Every surface and every edge is contoured for comfort and gives the knife a very high-class look and feel. It features a replaceable steel lockbar insert that doubles as an overtravel preventer and comes with a tip up carry, milled titanium pocket clip.

Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.
